Alpine Physical Therapy is sought after for its leadership in Pilates-based rehabilitation. Our treatment philosophy is reflected in our extensive certification and use of the Pilates Method. Our three clinics are fully equipped with Balanced Body reformers and accessories. Alpine is also home to our international Balanced Body University Training Center. We work with area doctors and other referral sources in designing rehabilitation programs that successfully incorporate Pilates-based approaches. Our clients comment on how much they enjoy this form of care, particularly because they often find that they can get a good workout without flaring their symptoms. Pilates is an effective form of exercise for individuals needing acute post-operative care and treatment for persistent pain to conditioning for high-level athletes.
Pilates Certification of Alpine’s Physical Therapists
All of Alpine's therapists complete Balanced Body University Reformer 1 Certification or Core Align Level 1 training. Many of Alpine’s PTs have furthered their understanding and application of the Pilates method by completing several other modules of the comprehensive course work that Balanced Body University offers and Sam teaches from basic Mat 1 to Reformer 3. Obtaining Pilates certification as physical therapists has a big impact on results with patients.
